Well, that's quite ambitious, I must say. Usually, it's difficult to bond such large pieces effectively. Can be done, I "think", with some sheer determination and patience. If there was any way to conceal the "dots" of glue in inconspicuous places, I would suggest that. When I adhere my mirrors on t...

Well, in my field, "contemporary" usually means clean lines, crisp design, sleek, new...if you get my drift. Glass, in itself, is usually considered "contemporary", especially when used in unusual circumstances. When I first started making glass tile, few had ever heard of such a thing. So, a many-t...

Well, I guess I should mention that, since we started as as stained glass retail shop/studio in 1983 in Greensboro, we still sell supplies. Of course, fusing supplies are also readily available----and I LOVE the company of fellow fusers. So, if you're in the Greensboro area, let me know. - Barbara

Excellent site, Cynthia. Fabulous opening page. I just wanted to dive into your glass. The photos themselves show great creativity and just the right amount of "tease". Whoever designed it did a great job! - Barbara

IV drip system can be adjusted to give you the speed of water delivery you need. Dang...been using one of those things on the cat for 2 weeks. Cat didn't make it, so I threw the IV unit away. Could have been a very expensive investment that went into the garbage. Anyway, I found the turn-type nozzl...

Keiko, on the practical side, make sure your plates can stand the high dishwasher temps required by restaurants to sanitize their ware. - Barbara

I have a policy that any shipment to my dealer's customer is prepaid by the dealer, including freight and handling. I got stuck once for $2000, because I didn't get the money up front. Never, never again....Barbara

You might want to serach the archives. There is a plethora of information on micas. Basically, for an even coating, you need to airbrush them and the medium of choice is Klyr Fire. Apply multiple thin coats and fire to about 1380. Avery Avery, I looked in the archives, but didn't really find my ans...

I have to agree that incentives are not needed when the job is in the bag. That appears to come from lack of self-esteem, or whatever. Several years back (and the economy was toilet-bound), I got a job at $1500. When I did it, it didn't take me as long as I thought, so (since the $1500 was an "estim...

My preference for an etching cream is Velvet Etch, which I purchased through Ed Hoy. Smoother, cleaner and less messy than Armor Etch. I am really not sure if they still carry it, but it was fantastic...and cheaper than Armor Etch. My input. - Barbara C
